MLB.com At Bat Lite
is now Live in the App Store. If you purchased MLB.com last season or
grabbed the free offseason version of At Bat, the latest upgrade will
automatically convert the App to At Bat Lite.
Why the change? The original version of MLB.com At Bat was set to expire at the start of
2009 season. As a service to baseball fans who purchased the app in 2008, we
decided to extend it as a free scoreboard app rather than have it simply stop
Additionally, the Lite version gives new users the chance to try out the full Gameday
experience during Spring Training and the World Baseball
Once the Regular
Season starts, the Lite version will only provide access to the scoreboard view
and the new “Extras” content. To get the full Gameday experience including
real-time video highlights and our new Gameday Audio feature, users can purchase MLB.com At Bat 2009. It’s coming soon to the App Store.
As always, feel free
to leave questions and comments.
Last night, during the TV broadcast of game 3 of the NLCS between the Phillies and Dodgers, Apple unveiled it’s latest iPhone ad featuring MLB.com At Bat. The ad, entitled “Game Changer,” shows how the app transforms your iPhone into a “score checker, live pitch updater, or video highlight player.”
With the LCS in full swing, now is a great time to try out MLB.com At Bat for the remainder of the 2008 season at it’s reduced price of $2.99. Available on the App Store.
October Baseball is in full swing with the Phillies taking on the Brewers, and you can follow all the action on your iPhone with MLB.com At Bat. For the Postseason, we’ve dropped the price of the application to $2.99, so there’s no reason not to get it today.

Just in time for the pennant races, MLB.com Gameday has been added to MLB.com At Bat for the iPhone. The new 1.2 release, which became available in the App Store yesterday (September 1), now includes Gameday’s exclusive pitch type, location and speed data plus full box scores, play-by-play, scoring plays, base-runners and player stats. It’s the fastest and most detailed way to follow a game on a mobile device.

The first update to MLB.com At Bat is now available for download from the iPhone App Store. The release is focused on improvements to application performance and the addition of user preferences. New and existing At Bat users will now be able to set their favorite team, the application data refresh rate, and the default video aspect ratio.
- With the favorite team setting, At Bat will now display your team’s game at the top of the scoreboard so that you won’t have to scroll to find it.
- The refresh rate setting gives you the option of receiving new game data at intervals of 15, 30 and 60 seconds. The faster updates will let you follow the game more closely, however be aware that making lots of requests for data will use up more of your battery life.
- The video aspect ratio preference will let you set the default video playback as either Full Screen or Fit to Screen. Fit to Screen will play the clip back in its native format. Since the iPhone screen is slightly wider than the video, this will leave thin vertical black bars on either side of the clip. Full Screen will blow up to picture to fill the entire screen, but the result will slightly clip the top and bottom of the picture. The setting only controls the default playback, so you will be able to switch the playback while watching at any time.
In addition, we recently optimized the quality of the At Bat video clips for the 3G network. This may cause a slightly longer wait to download the clips over the EDGE network but there should be significantly less artifacts and motion blur. Users connected to WiFi will continue to receive clips optimized for broadband connections.
